Here is a simple recipe that is a great source of protein. This Crustless Spinach, Feta and Onion Quiche Recipe is easy to make and tastes delicious.
Last week I was looking for some recipes I could try out and this was one of the ones I found. It has a nice amount of protein and it looked like it would be soft to chew. I am also a BIG fan of Feta Cheese so I was very excited to cook it up. I thought it was very tasty so it was worth the share. So if you are looking for something different give this a try.
Here is what you will need to make it:
- 1 Medium Onion – Diced
- 6 ounces Fresh Baby Spinach (I used regular Spinach and chopped it up and removed stems)
- 2 Large Eggs
- 2 Large Egg Whites
- 1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour
- 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- Pinch of Cayenne Pepper (I did not add this to mine, but next time I will)
- 1 1/3 Cups of Skim Milk
- 1/2 Cup Feta Cheese
Preheat your oven to 400
Grease a 10 inch or so Pie/Quiche Pan – I used a Cake Pan
Next gather all your ingredients. I also chopped up my spinach since I did not buy the Baby Spinach – I also cut off the stems.
In a frying pan cook your diced Onions in a bit of Olive Oil (or Cooking Spray) until they are soft. Then add in your Fresh Spinach and cook until just wilted – this will happen fast. When that is done take it off the heat and set aside to cool for a few.
In a Large Mixing Bowl. whisk together Eggs, Flour, Baking Powder and Salt. If adding in a pinch of Cayenne Pepper you can do that now as well. Next whisk in the Milk and then you can stir in your Onion Spinach mixture.
Then just pour that into your Pie Pan, or in my case Cake Pan – lol. Then take your Feta Cheese and crumble it all over the top.
Bake your Quiche in the oven for about 25 minutes or until set and the outer edge is golden brown.
Let is set for about 5 minutes and then cut it and eat !!
